RiPPLE® decreases headaches, increases energy, decreases tooth pain.
Bruxism, the sleep disorder being overlooked.
The RiPPLE was clinically developed to reduce or eliminate night time bruxism, the clenching and grinding of teeth during sleep. Using the patented design, the RiPPLE holds your jaw in a ideal sleep position while still allowing for movement and comfort. It is designed to guide the biting force to the front teeth, not allowing back teeth to contact, which greatly reduces the force. Try biting something with only your front teeth, you have almost no strength. The opposite is the case when biting with your back teeth. During sleep, when your back teeth contact, your major muscle system will engage and contract. This clenching and grinding, and muscle contraction causes an arousal, and disrupts your sleep cycle. Besides disrupting sleep, bruxism can also cause damage to teeth, muscle pain in the face, head and neck and headaches.
By preventing the back teeth from contacting, the RiPPLE prevents sleep disruption. The longer intervals of time a person sleeps, typically the longer REM cycles they can experience. REM is the cycle of sleep when our bodies repair and reset. Hormones are regulated, immune systems charged and even apetite and weight control chemicals are released. By preventing bruxism, and increase deep sleep, the RiPPLE can change lives. Increase in energy, decrease in weight gain, hormone regulation and even prevention of more advanced sleep disorders, are all possible with the RiPPLE.
